you service. >> stephanie: that's what i wonder sometimes, we feel -- john edwards used to use the two americas and it literally feels like i'm sitting here in l.a., and it feels like we're talking about two different countries. >> we are. and it's a totally republican-run state too. >> stephanie: at least the good news is mickey the president was reelected and he has done more for gay rights than any of the previous presidents combined. so hopefully we're moving forward >> yeah, but it is also up to the individual states. >> stephanie: i really hope it gets decided at the supreme court level, because i feel like you can't have different laws all over the country, it literally makes it a mess. >> it does. work benefits in one state, they move to another state, those benefits are denied. it's a huge mess. >> stephanie: yep.

would get into opposition. >> interestingly talking about veterans, john mccain supported it. another veteran. truly distinguished and a claimed veteran supported not just by his vote, but also testified in favor of it before the foreign relations relation committee. so there is a group presently serving men and women who supported this law. we don't have to go back to the bob doles or the former president bushes, and with all due respect to them, you've asked the right question. what do we do in the here and now, the present. i think there is a real potential body of strength to work outward and maybe recruit some of those senators who voted against it, and we'll have new senators who are not yet on record. >> eliot: i and many others certainly hope when you turn the corner in january i heard senator kerry say there could be hearings shine a spotlight on how flawed the arguments in opposition to the treaty were. the questions remains is this systemic of a larger problem with the republican party? it seems to grasp at arguments that we discount and are lacking in factual foundation to

, president obama is saying a million conciliatory things. here comes john boehner deciding he's going to draw a line again. >> without spending cuts and in title reforms it's impossible to address our country's debt crisis and get our economy going again and to grow jobs. right now all eyes are on the white house. the country doesn't need a victory lap. it needs leadership. it's time for the president congressional democrats to tell the american people what spending cuts they're really willing to make. >> cenk: there he goes again spending cuts, enexcitement reform. we'll get to entitlement reform in a minute. they are huffing and puffing and laughing in tim geithner's face today. based on some articles that i have read, this morning i tweeted out: there is the unknown ones, how much are they going to increase taxes. i predicted 37-38% and capitol gains 20%-22%. i don't have definitive numbers for you sos i got it right but i read this today: >> cenk: now do you understand that? the clinton era rates are 39.5 wear. all along, president obama was saying i'm taking away the bush tax cuts, we're

, john boehner. >> earlier in our conference meeting that i disagreed with him. he's a wonderful friend of mine and a great supporter of mine. the goal here is to grow the economy and control spending. you're not going to grow the committee if you raise tax rates on the top two rates. it will hurt small businesses. it will hurt our economy. that's why this is not the right approach. >> cenk: why do i always think that guy is drinking? anyway he's not budget budging we're not going to raise the tax rates. the same 'ol game he has been playing, so it will be interesting to see how that plays out. but we have a lot of budgeting. stephanie cutter went on msnbc. look at what she says. >> we have to look at everything that someone on the table. the mandate the president has his mandate is to protect the middle class and help people enter and stay in the middle class? how do we do that? we have to make sure that medicare is there for the future and medicaid is strong and efficient. >> but he's going to be open to changes to all this stuff? >> he has a plan on the table. it's a little bi
